22nd May 2020

We would like you to have a go at creating some work that we can send to Rappaman, he has said that he would like to come into school when we get back to normal he will come and visit us to look at your work and even record some of you reading your poems, raps or stories. Some of you have been lucky enough to meet him when he has visited our school to do some workshops and assembly. 



aka Donavan Christopher, he has set the following challenges for you in KS2 - see below for details of Poem or rap writing/story writing/reading aloud.



Poem or rap writing

Could you write a poem about being away from school? The theme of your poem should be around the idea that it is ‘fun but not funny’ that you are learning at home and not at school at the moment.


Could you write a poem or a rap about KINDNESS? A great way to start this is to write down 16 things related to kindness, being kind, being thoughtful about others, kind things you can do etc. and then turn each into a line of a poem.


Could you write a poem about the importance of Reading? You could write the first line and then pass it on to your friend to write the second line, your DB Primary Blogs would be a great way of writing a line of a poem each and watching it grow.


Younger children/anyone – Rappaman suggests choosing your own poem or nursery rhyme to have a go at!


Here are some poems that you could have a look at to give you some idea of the type of poetry you could create. Click on his picture below to open the document for you to read the poems.

These are the books he has written so far which we have in our own library, he is also releasing a new book soon called ‘Rappaman READ ALOUD PROUDLY!’ This book contains 12 poems which you have to read aloud. Once you have completed the Read Aloud Proudly Challenge and read all 12 poems including a shouting poem and a success poem, you achieve a certificate at the end of the book. It sounds great and definitely one to keep an eye open for in our school library when it is released (date yet to be announced).

Latest book not yet available to buy.


Other activities you can try:-


Story writing

If you’re more of a story writer, why not write a short story how Rappaman saves the world from ? Here you can really use your creativity and imagination. You could do a short comic book style story and let the artist roam free too! What would Rappaman’s super powers be? Who would be his arch enemy or enemies?


Reading aloud

Another challenge you could have a go at is reading aloud with confidence and expression! Rappaman is looking for a clear and expressive yet funny voice. You may choose a high voice, a low voice or a posh voice, try any voice that isn’t your own but ensure you have clarity in your expression. Could you record yourself reading one of Rappaman’s and then post it to your Blog on DB Primary?


Remember to post things to your blog to show off your work
